Swansea University Dylan Thomas Prize 2022 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood as the winner of the Swansea University Dylan Thomas Prize 2022

Darkly funny and brilliantly constructed, poet Patricia Lockwood's whip-smart debut novel about a social media star on a collision course with reality explores our vexed relationship with both technology and humanity in a voice that is at once sincere and deliciously impudent.

 

‘A searingly witty and innovative take on modern day internet culture. The book’s flow of consciousness, almost diary-like in quality, is remarkably deft at capturing the psychological impact which simultaneous alienation and ‘group think’ life online has on us as individuals. We cannot wait to see what comes next from this uncompromising talent.’

Namita Gokhale, Chair of Judges
